Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Response To Jerry Seinfeld's Comments Is A Masterclass In Shade

Jerry Seinfeld really seems to resent political correctness. In August 2018, the actor addressed the topic with the New York Times when asked if he’d ever offered an apology for any of his material. “No. Jokes are not real,” he said. “People assume that when you say something that you believe it. It’s purely comedic invention.” He continued, “You know, I do this whole bit about Pop-Tarts and how much I love them. I don’t love Pop-Tarts. It’s just funny. It’s funny to say it, so I say it.” However, Seinfeld later acknowledged there is a line between offensive and funny when discussing Roseanne Barr, who was fired from the “Roseanne” reboot due to a racist comment about Valerie Jarrett.

Three years earlier, the creator, who admitted that he doesn’t perform at colleges and universities, cited political correctness as a reason why comics might keep not be excited to perform their material for college students. “I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC,'” Seinfeld said during an appearance on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” (via EW). He also complained about college students who used terms such as “racist,” “sexist,” and “prejudice,” claiming that they were uninformed. Later in the segment, Seinfeld said that he believed political correctness was a hindrance to comedy. “To me it’s anti-comedy,” he continued. “It’s more about PC nonsense” (via Salon).
